Just Some Superheroes Hangin' Out at the Park

Yesterday evening, after work, we did something we don't normally do...my three boys and I headed to the park (I'm LOVIN' this time change thing!). Even though it was after 6, it was still sunny outside. It was perfect weather for the park.

We had the greatest time! We played and laughed and just enjoyed spending time together...away from work, away from home, away from all our responsibilities. It was so nice just to hang out and enjoy each other.

While at the park, Tristan was cracking us up! At one point, he decided we would all play superheroes (he has a good friend who is really into superheroes, so he's learning all about Superman, Spiderman, Bibleman, etc. Thanks, Timothy!). Well, while climbing the slide yesterday, he made us laugh so hard! This is what he said:

Tristan: Daddy, I am Spida Man. I climb.
Channing: Ok, Spida Man. Who am I?
Tristan: Daddy, you are Bite Man. (At this point, I am laughing hysterically. I knew exactly who 'Bite Man' was. Channing, on the other hand, had no clue).
Me: Spida Man, what does Bite Man do?
Tristan: Bite Man makes bats! (Have you figured out who 'Bite Man' is?)

It was so hilarious! Once Channing figured out who 'Bite Man' was, he was laughing right along with me. We cracked up every time he would yell across the park for Bite Man to hurry over.

You may be wondering which character I was. I was Bible Man. When I told Tristan I was Bible Man, he asked me what color helmet I had. Since I was wearing green, I told him I had a green helmet. WRONG ANSWER. His response, "Eew...Green Bible Man is disgusting!" Nice, right? It didn't matter, we had a great time. We need more days at the park just like yesterday.

Asher got to swing on a park swing for the first time and LOVED it. It was so sweet!
I think we'll make this a common thing around our home...going to the park after work. I know we won't be able to do it every day, but hopefully we can do it a couple of times a week. I realized we all needed it!

You guys are one big super family....like the Incredibles =)
Glad you had a fun park day! It has been great to get out and enjoy the weather (other than today...Rain Rain Go Away)

What fun!! So glad Bite Man figured out who he was before he misunderstood and tried his biting powers!!! That could have been dangerous!

Hilarious! You're right! That COULD have been dangerous. :)

Hey Annie! How fun your day sounds. We've been trying to get out too- now that daddy can get home before it's dark! It's wonderful! I would LOVE to e-mail Holly- just so you have it- my e-mail is ayersjd@aol.com. I loved looking at your pledge class picture- how precious- everyone is still beautiful.

Annie! Can you believe Jin had to die on "Lost" tonight? I mean- he was SUCH a good guy. At least June and her baby live.

I am SO confused! I thought that Sun just thought he was dead. So she was having flashforwards, and his were flashbacks? I've got to read the message boards.
If he really is dead, I'm SO SAD!
